Americus-- Georgia Southwestern University celebrates the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King.

GSW students and guests from across the region packed into the Fine Arts Theater to hear guest speaker, Joe Martin. Martin, an author and college professor, says King was first a servant--his purpose, to help others. Martin challenged the crowd to live King's dream by serving others.

GSW Senior Asha Odums says, "One of the things I want to do is be a counselor. I want to give back. I hope I am by the things I am doing and the organizations I am in--extra time I'm giving now will come out later."

Martin encouraged the young people to find their talents, and use them to better our world. He says there's no better way to honor the great civil rights leader.
